Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

That's the question we all wanna know the answer.
This year, the only player who reached a good form was Federer, and only for some matches.

Neither Nole, Rafa, Murray, Berdych or Tsonga find their Super-Form.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

I'm not 100% confident Nole 2.0 will ever show up. I'm not convinced with his form this year. He barely eked out a win at the Oz Open and has won 1 other title this year. I'm not impressed with Nole this year. He lost all his clay encounters to Rafa this year and has lost some matches against opponents he usually beats.

Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

Still... Better than 2010 and with a better ranking than the begining of 2011.
The year isn't over, last year he had a bad season-ending, after the USO he didn't do anything great.

He made great winners vs Roddick, it's true 'duck played like crap, and it's obviously understandable that a fan isn't convinced with his form.

But he's young and talented...

Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

I agree that his form is not as good as 2011 but, at least at slams he is performing a little bit better than anybody else on the tour, including Fed (who is currently #1 because he did play more tournaments etc.) ... so don't know. I think he is still doing well if we look at the big picture. I'd say it's not Nole 2.0, but more like Nole 1.6 :-)

overall, I'd be more worried about Nadal, Tsonga, Murray and Berdych ...

Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

I don't think he will reach his 2011 form again, at least not for such a long time.
Nole 1.5 is the best way to describe the current Nole. He is beatable, but still more aggressive than in the past. Great serving lately and Mental toughness keeps him as at least one of the two biggest favorites for every Slam.

Oh and viruzzz, don't even get me started on Berdych.
His 2012 is such a waste! He was playing good at AO, and found his best form at the start of the clay season, beating Murray from a set down, almost beating Djokovic and putting up a great performance against Nadal at some tourney. All this just to play a lousy match against Delpo, clearly missing his chances. (Can't say I'm not happy, though. Federer was next).
At Wimbledon he was unlucky to catch Gulbis on a fantastic day, but to blow up your second chance like that at the Olympics? I haven't seen such a nervous match from anybody since Federer-Haas RG 2009. Such a shame that he was playing his best Tennis but fucked up a year with so much potential.

His best days are over IMO.

He will still win some slams though.

Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

Aside from Australia, Nole has kind of reverted back to pre-2011 form IMO.. You might think that is a bit harsh to say, but remember, Novak was still beating Federer and Nadal occasionally and he was still making it to the latter stages of most events. The difference in 2011 was that he was converting those semi-finals and finals into wins, but this year, really has been pretty pre-2011 Djokovic, so I'm not sure how one could consider him Nole 1.5? Yes he won Australia, but it was very tight and he hasn't shown much real form aside from spurts which again is no different than 2007-2010 Novak.

Either way, he has plenty of time to give us another great run. Another 2011ish run? Most likely not, but it certainly isn't impossible especially for a player like him. After the US Open will give us a better picture, because arguably clay and certainly grass are still not his thing like hardcourts are.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Federer is no. 1 because he played great at tournaments right from WTF in 2011 and also because djokovic failed to defend a lot of points he had gained last year.
This says a lot about the dip in nole's form.

Re: When will Nole 2.0 show up this season?

He did show up briefly during the 3rd set of RG final before the rain dealy .A repeat of 2011 is highly unlikely but I do see him being more consistent than he has been post-AO.

Maybe after he loses to Murray. That loss will motivate Djokovic to go into 2.0 mode hopefully
